Lets burn the roof – Woohooo


Avada has tagged me to list 5 of my favorite dancing numbers. Sorry honey for being tad too late…was occupied with the uni exams…

I love dancing and as it is a major stressbuster for me, I am taking liberty here to list more than my fair share of 5 tracks that groove me just about any where – car, shower, kitchen, office, road, crossings, malls………

(Songs are listed in no particular order!). See the amazing videos tooo…

1. Aaja Nachle – Boy I love dancing and matching Madhuri’s step. This one is my favorite and I love the typical bollywood matkas and jhatkas on this track. Last time I danced on it was on Sujatha’s Diwali party in 2008 (kinda solo). ;)

2. To Brazil – Vengaboys eternal song…..man we danced a lot on this on my parent’s 25 Wedding Anniversary celebrations. Whenever I listen to this track – I think of old gold days and see happy faces of mom and dad.

3. Sukhbir’s Sauda Khara Khara – Any Sukhbir song and we all cousins would turn nuts…..Dil Lena Dil Dena – Hai Sauda Khara Khara….Nachley Soniye, Dil Kare (Macha’s fav track :D )

4. Aahun Aahun – I actually dance sitting in my office while listening to this on iPod. Ankh lad jaana, mar mukh jaana, ekoiye kahaani bus badle zamaana. Can’t wait to flaunt my grooves on my birthday bash!! Shhhh Sshhhh Sssshhhhh details will be posted later ;)

5. Chor Bazaari – Love this one…..naughty steps and fultoo masti after being high! You betcha ;) rang birnaga paani peeke seedhi saadhi mehak bigad gai… ;)

6. I gotta feeling – BEP I love you for giving us this every party number. Ppppppparty everyday…ppppparty everyday….I love – ‘lets burn the roof – wohoooo and we do it aggggaainnn….Crazy Soph and I danced away to glory on Beca ball on this one.

7. Jahaan Teri Ye Nazar Hai – Mimicking the famous Big B dance step and memories of Conti party revisited. We danced a lot on this song on our last day of school life!

8. Dil Le Gayi Kudi Gujarat Di – Another oldy but awesome song. ‘Kem Cho Majja Macho’. Another one in the same league would be Aaja Nachle (Hans Raj Hans aur Bally Sagoo waala). Or as a matter of fact Sagoo’s Gur Naalo Ishq Mittha tooo yaay I am high on these desi punjabi numbers ;)

 

9. Mauja Hi Mauja – I love Shahid’s and Hrithik’s dance and this one is my favorite number. O maahi mera sharbat verga, o maahi tennu cham cham rakhna!

10. Mamma Mia and Dancing Queen – Another classics and awesome songs to let your hair loose. Friday nights and the lights are low..looking out for a place to go – where they play the right music….yeah babbby right music that’s what its all about…

11. Dance pe chance – A musical tutorial for typical bollywood jhatkas. Ek haath uta le yara jaise suiyan 7 se 12 le ban gaya step soniya….dooja haath hile zara neeche, jaise udti patang koi kheeche- Le ban gaya step soniya. I can so totally teach my partner some steps on this one???

12. Balle Balle je soniya te rang vekh lo (Balle Balle Amritsar to LA) – Awesome mix from the crossover movie. I was suppressing my feelings and acting as a shy bride on my engagement when they played this song and I knew I had to dance and I did too :) And now I am dancing while seeing the video…. :D

13. Sajnaji Waari Waari – Crazy dance moves by KK from the movie Honeymoon Travels. Love dancing on this one!

There are so many more..sorry Avada for being late, I was tied with uni earlier and now with the party preps…….will post the detailed info about the party we are planning with the pics soon..

Wish me luck :)

Avada’s affection


Avada, the golden infectious girl has striked yet again and presented me with not one but two awards! For being really honest in what I write For having a blog that avada enjoys reading

The thing that striked me after feeling happy was I have been on and off blogosphere, have written more than 100 posts; I started the blog as a medium to keep my mind busy after the tragedy in 2007 on 8th October just two days after my birthday and 9 days before my wedding – a phase where I was generally confused and felt lost!

I have never written any blog post considering to promote it via some random awards or ‘best blogger’ forums. This is my space – my space where I vent out all the flirted ideas I have had in mind througout the day – I don’t mind if I don’t get any comments – what matters is being inactive on wordpress for so long has still reaped me 55k+ visitors (Hope Reema is satisfied now!!!!) readers and some of them have written me personal emails sharing their experiences!

I read others blogs! I necessarily don’t comment! But I read them…..and smile and frown at the words.

I didn’t write a post when I finished my 50th post, 100th post, 120th post and so on! Similarly, I never wrote a post to celebrate my 10k visitor or 25k or now more than 55k visitors.

What started off as ‘Mind Flirting with Thoughts’ is still continuing – its my medium where I write my honest opinions and share my constant rants of confused mind.

I would like to say thanks to Avada for sticking to the blog and being its youngest regular visitor and posting her regular comments, kudoz to Sakhi for being a sakhi – she has been there – we might have not discussed a lot but in a way she sorted a lot of my personal mess, thanks Harsh – I remember reading your whole blog in a single day – I was so intrigued by it!, thanks Kiran for making me feel known since ages in each and every message we have exchanged ever, thanks Reema and Amit and Vishesh for your kind comments :)

In the end, you can enjoy some of my previous work here. I recommend the short sories section to start with! Cheers.

Thanks Avada – doll you rock ! Here’s an award from me to you – a unique award started by me and meant for you only; don’t tag further! :) Love ya heaps :P


I have survived this killer girl :P

I have survived this killer girl :P
